OPEC funds UN antiAIDS efforts in Arab region Central America and Caribbean

The OPEC Fund for International Development is providing $3.2 million for the programme in Central America and the Caribbean, which is designed to reduce vulnerability to HIV/AIDS, particularly among youth and mobile populations, in Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras and Saint Lucia. HIV prevalence rates in the Caribbean are the second highest in the world after sub-Saharan Africa, according to the UN. About 1.9 million people in Central America and the Caribbean live with HIV/AIDS, and 200,000 people acquired the virus there last year alone. The OPEC-funded programme for the Arab region will raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and strengthen national efforts to detect and respond to the pandemic, particularly among vulnerable groups, in Lebanon, Morocco, the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Somalia, the Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The $1 million project will train community workers to deal with reproductive health issues affecting youth, including the prevention of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. Although AIDS has spread more slowly in the Arab region than elsewhere, there were an estimated 80,000 new infections there last year, bringing the number of infected people in the region to 500,000. Because efforts to prevent and control the disease are weak, UNFPA says, the number of cases could rise quickly. “The partnership between UNFPA and the OPEC Fund is a significant contribution to the global fight against HIV/AIDS,” said UNFPA Executive Director Thoraya Obaid of the new three-year initiative. “It is a good example of how donors can pool resources to scale up information and services to prevent further infections and save lives.” Dr. Y. Seyyid Abdulai, Director-General of the OPEC Fund, described HIV/AIDS as a major challenge which demands priority attention. “We need a healthy and active global population if we are to move development forward,” he said. read more

Hatred a threat to everyone declares Guterres calling for global effort to

“Such incidents have become all-too-familiar” said António Guterres, citing “Muslims gunned down in mosques, their religious sites vandalized; Jews murdered in synagogues, their gravestones defaced with swastikas” and Christians “killed at prayer, their churches often torched.”Instead of being safe havens, houses of worship have become targets, he warned, noting that “beyond the murders, there is loathsome rhetoric: xenophobia aimed not only at religious groups but also at migrants, minorities and refugees…venom directed at anyone considered the ‘other’”.Online ‘hothouses of hate’He said that some parts of the internet were rapidly becoming “hothouses of hate, as like-minded bigots find each other on-line”. With “vile views move from the fringes to the mainstream” Mr. Guterres said he was “profoundly concerned that we are nearing a pivotal moment in battling hatred and extremism.”In response he has set two “urgent initiatives” in motion; the drawing up of UN plan of action to “fully mobilize” the system to tackle hate speech, led by Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, and an effort being led by the High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) Miguel Moratinos, to help ensure the safety of religious sanctuaries.“The world must step up to stamp out anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim hatred, persecution of Christians and all other forms of racism, xenophobia, discrimination and incitement”, said the UN chief.Hatred is a threat to everyone – and so this is a job for everyone” he added. “Political and religious leaders have a special responsibility to promote peaceful coexistence. I will count on the strong support of Governments, civil society and other partners in working together to uphold the values that bind us a single human family”Summit against hate speech in GenevaEarlier on Monday, at the UN in Geneva, a major summit to counter hate speech got underway, co-hosted by Adama Dieng.Warning against a “revival” of ultra-nationalist groups and parties, the UN official warned that they “legitimized violations”, by portraying minorities as a threat to their culture and identity.“These groups are spreading their incendiary language into mainstream political discourse; we see this in too many countries,” he said, at the event co-hosted with the International Association for the Defense of Religious Liberty (AIDLR). “We need to collectively and actively stop these dynamics and counter them with messages of openness and inclusion.”“United Nations is taking steps to address the worrying hate speech trends, which are eroding shared values and standards,” — says Adama Dieng, @UN adviser for #genocide prevention at the opening of the Second Global Summit on Religion, Peace and Security. pic.twitter.com/IEDuNNL38v— UN Geneva (@UNGeneva) April 29, 2019 Just over a week ago, a terror attack on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka claimed hundreds of lives, while in New Zealand on 15 March, an extremist, and self-avowed white supremacist, gunned down 50 mosque worshippers.Last month, Mr. Dieng also expressed concern about spiralling intercommunal violence in central Mali which claimed 134 villagers’ lives in one single attack, including women and children.He warned that it could degenerate if nothing is done to stop it.“Over the recent months, violence has reached unprecedented level amid retaliatory attacks and serious violations of human rights in central Mali impacting on all communities,” Mr. Dieng said in a statement. “Unless these concerns are immediately addressed, there is a high risk of further escalation of the situation in which atrocity crimes could be committed.”Michael Møller, Director-General of UN Geneva, told participants at the Second Global Summit on Religion Peace and Security that hate speech was “spreading like wildfire through social media into the mainstream”.“It is a menace to our values, to social stability, to peace itself. And such hate speech is in turn the breeding ground for unfathomable evil,” he said, before insisting that the attacks in New Zealand and Sri Lanka represented “the bigotry that says another person is less than my equal, less than human.”In the face of such horrific events it was nonetheless crucial to remember that most people displayed “understanding, kindness, justice and reconciliation”, Mr Møller insisted. read more

Ontarians view universities as essential just behind hospitals and schools Poll

A new Gandalf Group survey of the Ontario population shows Ontarians rank universities’ contributions to society as essential, behind only hospitals and elementary and high schools.Poll results released by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) show that Ontarians believe universities make important contributions to research, science, health care, culture and society, as well as in preparing students for the workforce. The belief is not confined to those who attended university, but is shared by much of the Ontario population.The poll found the vast majority of Ontario university graduates credit their university education with career success and most Ontarians believe that universities’ ability to increase knowledge and skills is a valuable contribution.“The poll results show the many ways universities benefit individuals and the province as a whole,” says Max Blouw, COU Chair and President of Wilfrid Laurier University. “The people of Ontario recognize that universities are as fundamental to their well-being as hospitals. Our graduates are telling us their career success is a result of the education they received at university and we know that the economy depends on the contributions of these bright young minds.”Among the poll’s findings:· 88 per cent of adult Ontarians ranked universities’ overall contributions to the province as important, just behind hospitals (92 per cent) and elementary and high schools (90 per cent)· 83 per cent of those who have attended universities feel their education played a role in their career success; almost half said their university education contributed a great deal· 72 per cent of adult Ontarians say that teaching at universities to increase knowledge and skills is a very important contribution to society· 79 per cent believe universities make a very important contribution through research to understanding science and health care· 87 per cent believe Ontario university students benefit greatly from university programs· 94 per cent of respondents said their children were likely to apply to or attend university, 71 per cent said very likely· When it comes to what Ontarians expect universities to provide to students, the vast majority said it was important for them to attain not just valuable skills (97 per cent) and access to better jobs (95 per cent) but also the chance to grow personally (94 per cent), gain valuable decision-making skills (94 per cent) and greater independence (91 per cent).The poll, conducted for COU between July 15 and 25, 2013 by the Gandalf Group, surveyed 1,000 Ontario residents aged 18 and older representative of gender and age – including university graduates and others. The survey of randomly recruited participants online supports probability sampling accurate to plus or minus 3.1 per cent 19 times out of 20.“Ontario universities are pleased at the recognition among graduates and Ontarians in general that they play an invaluable role in society,” says Bonnie M. Patterson, COU President and CEO.“The success of our young people is crucial to the success of Ontario economically, culturally and socially. A university education is still the surest path to success.” read more

Charges likely for Otiesha on Monday – Police PR

Otis “Otiesha” PearsonPolice on Sunday said that it is “likely” that recommendations will be made for Otis “Otiesha” Pearson- who has been accused of paedophilia- to be charged on Monday (tomorrow).Pearson has been in custody for almost 6 six days as police continue their investigations regarding him being involved with underaged males.The transgender was arrested on March 6, 2018.“We received the file from the Child Care and Protection Agency and we are now investigating the matter officially”, Police “A” Division Commander, Leslie James had told this publication.The Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) back in February closed its investigation into the alleged misconduct by Pearson.According to CC&PA’s Director, Ann Green, the Agency has gathered statements from a number of persons, including the young man in the middle of the controversy, and as such, it is expected to move ahead with the case.The public became enraged when Pearson was heard in an interview reporting that “he has a little boy for every day of the week”. However, after he was bashed on social media, the transgender personality quickly defended himself, explaining that the term “little boys” was taken out of context.He attempted to cover up his alleged transgressions by stating that the term is actually referring to persons above the legal age of consent and is also used when referring to his colleagues.The statement quickly became a serious matter when a photo of Pearson hugging a young man was leaked on social media site Facebook.Many users of the site were of the opinion that the young man was underage; the age of consent in Guyana being 16.Investigations revealed that the boy was indeed below the age of 16 and was being bullied after the photos were leaked.

Its Vuruchuaivench mineral deposit has had an approval from the State Reserves Committee Rosnedra in regards to the provisional exploration standards and reserves estimations. The sulphide ore of this deposit contains such metals as platinum, copper and nickel, with the ore being alternatively mined by open pit and underground methods. The estimations it has calculated show that ore reserves are sufficient to be mined and sent for primary processing to a modular concentrator for a term of 19 years. There is also news of Platmin finalising and signing a joint mandate and term sheet with the Standard Bank of South Africa and Standard Chartered Bank to arrange and underwrite a debt facility of $200 million to Pilanesberg Platinum Mines. This facility will help the development of the Pilanesberg platinum mine project in South Africa.Energy companies are also seen throughout the report, with CIC Energy, Aurora Energy Resources, Strateco Resources, Bannerman Resources, Uranerz Energy and Northern Energy amongst others mentioned. In particular, CIC Energy has coal project in Botswana that is mentioned. Recent results from the Mmamabula coal project show a global mineral resource estimate of 2,930 Mt of coal in the measured and indicated categories.Vale has also been busy in development. It is intending to build a steel plant in Marabá, in the state of Pará, Brazil. This mill is planned to have a production capacity of 2.5 Mt/y of semi-finished steel and will take an investment of $3.3 billion to get completed. Start up is expected to be in 2013. Codelco is one company that is busy expanding. Its Radomiro Tomic open-pit mine, situated 45 km northeast of the City of Calama will soon benefit from the construction of the Sulfurs project, which will process primary sulphide ores to produce approximately 150,000 t/y of fine copper in concentrate.last_img read more

Lostprophets singer jailed for child sex crimes loses appeal bid

first_imgBRITISH ROCKER IAN Watkins of the band Lostprophets failed today in a bid to reduce his 35-year jail sentence for a string of child sex crimes including the attempted rape of a baby.Court of Appeal judges in Cardiff told the 37-year-old singer they would not grant leave for appeal.“These offences against children were of shocking depravity… a very lengthy prison sentence was demanded,” said Christopher Pitchford, one of the judges considering the bid. Court of Appeal judges (Left – right) Mr Justice Griffith Williams, Lord Justice Pitchford and Mrs Justice Simler as former Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins appeals his sentence.Last year, judge John Royce handed Watkins a 29-year jail term as well as an additional six years on licence after he admitted 13 offences, saying he had “plumbed new depths of depravity”.One of Watkins’ two female accomplices also had her appeal bid turned down.The singer, whose now-defunct band sold millions of albums around the world, plotted the abuse of two children with their own mothers in a series of text and Internet messages.After sexually touching one groupie’s 11-month-old baby son, the heavily-tattooed rocker then tried to have penetrative sex with the child.He also encouraged a second fan to abuse her female child during a webcam chat and secretly stashed child porn videos, some of which he had made himself.- © AFP, 2014Read: Ian Watkins sentenced to 35 years in prison for child sex abuse>Read: Lostprophets lead singer pleads guilty to attempted baby rape>last_img read more

Geek deals Xerox color laser printer for 299

first_imgThe maligned office printer: every hates it, but it’s a workplace necessity.  There’s the waiting, the failed jobs, the paper jams, and the smudgy prints. And they’re either the ancient kind that sucks up a ton of energy, or giant WiFi/Bluetooth-enabled space ships with too much unused functionality and little read-world practicality. Oh and the latter often sucks up serious energy, too.So where are the simple, easy-to-use printers that produce crisp text without taking up a whole room?You might be interested in the Xerox Phaser 6500N. This model is small. At 55lbs, it might not sound so slight, but it’s about an eighth of the size of those old copyroom behemoths. The Phaser is only about 16 inches high, deep, and wide, so you can easily tuck it in a corner or on a desk with tons of room to spare. And despite its small size, it packs a wallop — its 500-page capacity should keep you and your corner of the office printing for days, if not weeks. Its 24 page-per-minute print speed and 600×600 dpi keeps prints churning out at a fast pace and in clear detail. But take note: it’s not a multifunction printer.Keep in mind that you can’t scan or fax from it, but if you’re looking for a reliable, fast, and high-quality (albeit) garden-variety printer for your office, this is your guy. At this price, and considering that it’s color, it’ll work for SoHo environments well.Check out this deal at LogicBuy.last_img read more

Clinton says Greece can overcome economic crisis

first_imgUS Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed the US government’s strong support for the efforts of the Greek people and the Greek government to overcome the debt crisis, during a press conference last week. Clinton, who began a round of scheduled meetings with Greece’s government, met with Foreign Minister Stavros Lambrinidis to discuss Greece’s leadership during her visit to Athens. Clinton underlined that the government of Prime Minister George Papandreou had faced tough decisions and expressed Washington’s support for his determination to carry out reforms. Doing nothing would have far worse consequences than the current difficulties, she added, expressing her faith in the resilience of the Greek people. “I applaud the Greek government on its willingness to take these difficult steps. Greece has inspired the world before, and I have every confidence that you are doing so again,” she said. She stressed that the Greek government was on the right path and that the reforms it had carried out were like “chemotherapy” and would make the country more competitive and more attractive to investors. After her meeting with Lambrinidis, the Clinton attended a working dinner with the prime minister at his offices. Sources in the government said her talks with Papandreou covered the economic crisis, foreign policy issues, the problems faced by the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Istanbul, energy issues and the ‘Arab Spring’, as well as Greece’s role in the surrounding region. There followed a meeting between Clinton and President Karolos Papoulias. In a wide-ranging interview with Skai TV, Hillary Clinton highlighted the potential of Greece as a “regional hub” for the transport of oil and natural gas. Asked about possible investments by US firms, Clinton said she believed that there are “great opportunities” and highlighted the tourism sector and the relatively untapped renewable energy market. As reforms aimed at improving the climate for would-be foreign investors are implemented, Greece will become increasingly “attractive” to investors, she said. Clinton also commented on thorny diplomacy issues including a longstanding dispute over the name of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, saying that the Balkan state should not join the European Union before the row is settled. Questioned about domestic politics in Greece and attempts by the government to secure cross-party consensus on austerity, Clinton said such efforts were crucial. She acknowledged the difficulties of getting rivals to sit down and talk but said, “It is always the best approach.” Before leaving Greece for India, Clinton met the leader of the main conservative opposition party New Democracy, Antonis Samaras. The opposition leader expressed his party’s opposition to the involvement of private sector bondholders in a new rescue package for Greece.

Turns out sometimes cheap things come again, because this super popular pre-Super Bowl deal just returned. Today only, and while supplies last, Best Buy once again has the Insignia 24-inch LED TV with built-in Fire TV for just $99.99 (plus tax). That’s $50 off the regular price.See it at Best BuyRoku TVs get all the attention these days, but let’s not overlook the Fire TV option. It’s arguably just as good, with most of the same streaming apps: Netflix, Hulu, HBO and so on. And you get the benefit of an Alexa-enabled remote, so you can just tell the TV which channel you want.What’s more, Fire TV affords access to various Alexa skills and a huge library of Amazon apps. For example, you could play the excellent party game Quiplash — something Roku can’t do. Granted, a 24-inch screen is a little small for a party game, but you catch my drift. The TV itself tops out at 720p (aka 1,366×768-pixel) resolution, meaning it’s not ideally suited for computer use. But don’t let that “low” resolution dissuade you. At this size, 1080p is overkill.There’s a built-in tuner should you wish to connect an antenna, and three HDMI inputs for things like cable boxes and game consoles. Around 80 Best Buy customers collectively rated this 4.4 stars out of 5.I think something like this would make a fine addition to a kitchen, den, dorm room, bedroom or anyplace else a bigger TV wouldn’t fit.Your thoughts?

No damage reported from Yukon Delta storm but blizzard on the way

first_imgThe Yukon Delta remains under a blizzard warning through noon on Thursday, November 23. Whiteout conditions with drifting snow up to 12 inches are expected. (National Weather Service image)The good news is that the big storm forecasted for the Yukon Delta wasn’t that big after all, but the area isn’t in the clear. A blizzard warning is now in effect until noon on Thursday.The National Weather Service predicted high waters and the possibility of major erosion Tuesday night due to storm surge, and expected that Kotlik would be the Yukon village hit hardest. But Kotlik resident Roger Aketachunak called the night “quiet,” describing it as “blowing snow, but not really stormy.”Aketachunak said that the water did rise, but not enough to cause damage. No homes or boardwalks were affected; all the water did was climb about 30 yards to reach the outer pilings of the AC, the Alaska Commercial Company store.“I’m happy everyone’s alright,” Aketachunak told KYUK multiple times.That’s also the case in Alakanuk, where Tribal Administrator Ray Oney said that he slept with one eye open, but woke to find everything intact.“Yeah, it was pretty much bank to bank in our area,” Oney said, “but other than that, I haven’t heard anyone say it went over the bank.”The Yukon Delta remains under a blizzard warning through noon on Thursday. Whiteout conditions with drifting snow up to 12 inches are expected.last_img read more

St. Luke’s selected Orfit’s immobilization systems to enhance patient comfort, which can reduce movement and increase the precision of radiation delivery. Although the hospital primarily sought a belly board for pelvic patients, the hospital chose a variety of Orfit’s systems for their precise immobilization, patient comfort and interchangeable parts. Orfit Industries America, established in the United States in 2003, is actively translating this and other successes to the U.S. market where they are expecting to see continual growth in 2009.According to St. Luke’s Hospital, it selected Orfit’s solution because it provide patient comfort, there is less movement during therapy and the patient positioning is very reproducible. In addition, the system’s full-length, carbon-fiber base-plate can be kept on the treatment couch without changing the cushion format. The cushions can be switched quickly and are easy to clean.
